Engi can enchant several things of their own gear, but not anyone else's.If they could produce the normal helm enchants and sell them, that'd be cool. (Engi is not normally a "For Profit" profession.)
Meh - I'm not sure I really understand this change. Current BoA rep enchants (i.e. head enchants) are pretty easy since only one toon has to get the rep. Plus, you have a tabard to "grind" the rep anyways. So it was never really a big deal.But, removing them is also not a big deal.So.....meh. It really doesn't make a difference if they kept it or removed it.
I wonder if that includes the stamina from armor kits?
Dislike. I don't mind grinding rep but I understand the whole "this is my tank and so I gave to grind x-faction first to get my tanking enchant." That is how I played it in the past. Removing the enchants all together is a BAD move. As other posters mentioned- Blizz wants us to have more customization but then starts taking those very elements away.
Good. So i'm not the only one who's seeing these changes as duplicitous.I really don't understand. Going from BC to Wrath, there were some changes, but they were mostly minor and you could concentrate on playing the game. Wrath to Cata they exploded our stats, removed some pretty major aspects and changed how some of us played our class entirely... hampering us for months when it came out as they spent week after week re-balancing us while we tried to simply play. Now with MoP coming up, the upcoming changes seem even more drastic. ...is Blizzard going through a mid-life crisis or something?
Why are people complaining about being forced to go to places when they get an upgraded helm/shoulder? Therazane is only 2 portals away from your home city, most other places are 1 portal away. Head enchants are BoA (and are supposed to no longer require rep to use, just buy. Can't confirm though), and really, the Exalted shoulder enchants only give you 20 and 5 more to your stats than the Honored - you're not going to be THAT gimp w/out it.Back in Wrath, before BoA, you had to rep grind and fly all over Northrend to get your head/shoulders. Each time, for each character. Before that, we had to be honored/exalted with the Scryers/Aldor and honored with a certain dungeon reputation (which were all harder to grind reputation with than anything we've dealt with these past two expansions).Before that... well... I'm just glad I wasn't around for Vanilla arcanums.It seems to me that as a collective playerbase we're becoming increasingly lazy. Can you really blame Blizzard for just going "You know what, screw it, lets just remove it." Eventually we'll be able to send our companion pets out on quests/dungeons for us, because we just can't be bothered to quest the same zones on multiple toons.
